Kimock does an excellent instrumental version of stella blue. he sings the lyrics with his guitar with tons of feeling (as he always does).

I personally don't like any of the Jerry songs that Bobby sings in Furthur. Notably Help on the Way. Bobby should not sing that song...or the one verse of Dark Star that he sings with them...Also Phil on Eyes isn't horrible but it sounds weird having the vocals in a lower register (even though he generally sings the right notes)

I agree that Jerry ballads are for Jerry to sing. Stella Blue, Comes a Time, To Lay Me Down....everyone should leave those alone

Love In The Afternoon

I tried this once with my band and it was the worst ever.

I was able to pull off a pretty good "What' Become ..." .

but to lay me down is so fun to play! i love the chord changes at the end. sadly when the dead played it when jerry was done singing the song was over but it could really have been stretched out a little bit. i would never actually sing the words though in front of people as people would run for the exits.
